  • [QUOTE=Aurora93;35389837]the lights are still bland and generic. i'm not trolling. i've been mapping for years and the fact that i'm trying to help this effort shows you're just being dumb [editline]1st April 2012[/editline] func_viscluster makes sure all leaves in an area are attached/seeing each other and will speed up compile times[/QUOTE] Unless you suggest some way to improve it instead of just telling us what you think is wrong and not even why it's wrong you are not helping in the least. Instead, you insult me and the creators, tell us things in the map are stupid, and act hostile and uncooperative. The only way you can help is by being constructive, not destructive.

  • [QUOTE=Aurora93;35389654]i think the first thing, above any design changes, is to focus on correcting those visleaves. are you using func_details in the right spot? are you using func_viscluster for highly open areas? [editline]1st April 2012[/editline] probably make the lighting less bland and generic, add a few more details, and make it more intuitive to navigate b/c it can get confusing fast[/QUOTE] [img]http://puu.sh/nsJ4[/img] What kid of details? pipes? And more hard to navigate then straight paths? Its not a maze or anything [QUOTE=Zoshi235;35389706]The lighting is much improved and less bland and generic and there are far more details compared to Construct 12, and if you're confused by the navigation you need to spend more than 20 seconds flying around it in Noclip. Your ridiculous statements are only furthering the proof that you are an obvious troll or an even more obvious April Fool's Day prank :D Anyway, By randomly blowing up walls with closely packed 100,000 damage TNT, I managed to glitch the vents into being visible from the void. Might I suggest breakable walls instead of non-colliding entrances? Also, since navigating them is impossible without noclip, they're kind of pointless in their current state. I like the idea though.[/QUOTE] Please stop arguing. The there is an breakable entrance, but the exits are like that so you can see that its a way out and not just a dead end. [QUOTE=GameDev;35389719]I've stated that it's much too bright and light_spot and point_spotlight needs to be used multiple times, and you need to utilize hint and skip much more along with visclusters. [editline]1st April 2012[/editline] He does have a point, you know.[/QUOTE] I'll add more and make them have a blueish tint and be dimmer. There are 2 huge visclusters over the map as shown in the pic above. [QUOTE=BlackAwps;35389807][t]http://puu.sh/nsBN[/t] Why is this like this? It looks god awful. [/QUOTE] What should I do to make them look better? make the steps start further back? [QUOTE=BlackAwps;35389807] [t]http://puu.sh/nsCA[/t] Why is this hall so damn tall? Why are those light there? Why two of them? Why not use the model used in the mirror room? The fact that the models are clipping more than 50% into the brush makes it look even worse. [/QUOTE] I've been meaning to make them lower, I'll write it in bold and underlined on my list I'm currently making [QUOTE=BlackAwps;35389807] [t]http://puu.sh/nsDd[/t] More bricks.. How original. Possibly remove those beams or make better ones that would fit with a tunnel theme. Maybe change up the lighting style to be more consistant, but just turn down the brightness and give it a creepy color. Those lights are so bright that it's leaving a giant glowing circle on the ceiling making it look even worse.[/QUOTE] Do you have a reference pic of a good tunnel I can base it on?

  • [QUOTE=highvoltage;35389973]What should I do to make them look better? make the steps start further back?[/quote] Would probably be your best bet.

[QUOTE=highvoltage;35389973]Do you have a reference pic of a good tunnel I can base it on?[/quote] Yes, I just whipped up a tunnel that I think would look nice in hammer. Just a very quick mock-up. Could probably add sprites to the lights to make them look more defined, but meh. [t]http://puu.sh/nsUM[/t] And the VMF [url]http://puu.sh/nsV9[/url]

That entire statement is completely contradictory to itself. Constructive criticism involves suggestions on how to improve the map. Yes, we know you said more visclusters, but where? You give us no information other than "It needs more visclusters". You are still being pointlessly hostile and anything but constructive. I don't know where the hell this sudden flood of hostility came from, but I'll be back tomorrow, after the anger tornado has found some other thread to annoy.

I believe that gmod_allowtools 0 also works to prevent things like the remove tool from affecting things. At least, they worked the last time I tried. Actually, nevermind- I misread the problem.

  • Looking good! Still not a big fan of the lack of a hole in the 2nd skyscraper but i guess i can live with it.. The tunnel that is pitch black near the dark room should have some flickering red/yellow lights.

It will be fun implementing them with modifications and adding details to it.

  • It's a very nice map and a very good addition to the existing construct, but I have a few problems with it. 1: The underground tunnels are absolutely horrible with no indication of where you're going and are generally horrible to look at. 2: One of my contraptions fell through the concrete floor in front of the large door...thing on the large building. I don't think that should happen. 3: There's no logical way to move up the skyscrapers without noclip as far as I could see. You need to design maps from the perspective that nobody has any idea what it is or how to use it. Otherwise, I can't wait to see this develop!

If you are unable to decompile the mediafire version of the map (Which you fully can), to get the reference to the area, I will isolate the area for you and send you a vmf. Let me know how it goes.

  • Currently, the vents are way too small and cramped. Vents should be 64x64 units. [t]http://puu.sh/nuha[/t] [t]http://puu.sh/nuhx[/t] Mapped in some example vents into that tunnel vmf [url=http://puu.sh/nuiw]Download[/url] Includes a compiled BSP incase anyone wants to go in and see for themselfs along with the VMF. I think I'm done with this.

  • When do you think you can release another Gmod 12 BSP, because the Underground hallways are pretty cool.

  • Avatar of HighVoltage
  • I'm currently adding the halls and stairs that BlackAwps posted. Its a lot of work adapting them and the map so that they work together, but so far they are turning out real nice.
